The BeerStack is a useful reference guide for home brewers. Included in this stack are recipes and information about different styles of beer.
"Beer is one of the most complex beverages that you can drink. It is, among other things, good-tasting, social, and in too high a quantity intoxicating. To me, beer is more than a glass of light brown liquid with alcohol and a foam head; it is the ultimate topic to discuss among friends or enemies and a very peculiar fluid indeed.
Many people I know are not as enthusiastic. I have tried to convince them to try something other than the regular golden coloured brew that they always have when we’re down the pub, but talking about it doesn’t seem to be enough.
Water, of course, is the main ingredient of beer. Without water we would have to chew our brew, wouldn’t we? Then we have malted barley in different forms, hops of several varieties, yeast, and sometimes sugar or cereals known as adjuncts."

Fascination with production of beer
This HyperCard is the ultimate information center for the process of brewing, production, selling and the consumption of Beer. I found it so interesting and really cool. There were so many details in to the process of making beer, how it has evolved, and how it is consumed. This reference guide helped erase the negative connotation of beer and turned it into something fascinating. There is a lot of text and words on the screen I wished there had been more images and when you are exploring different categories within the map sound was added. I think the level of engagement for the user when exploring BeerStack could have been taken a step further.
Along with some of the features were incomplete and the screen would flash “unregistered version is not complete” leaving me with the assumption that this was not the full version of the Hypercard BeerStack. Nevertheless, I utterly enjoyed exploring in BeerStack and am definitely more educated on the brewing of beer then ever before.
